“I am so very pleased that my constituent, … who I enthusiastically supported, has been chosen to serve as our new U.S. Treasurer,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
“While working for the City of Oakland, she led the efforts to facilitate development and business opportunities within Oakland and revitalize the city’s downtown and neighborhood corridors,” Lee said.
Rios currently is Managing Director of Investments for MacFarlane Partners, one of the leading real estate investment management firms in the U.S. She serves as the primary liaison with the firms’ real estate and capital partners to facilitate investments located in urban and high-density suburban markets and recently closed on over $345 million worth of equity commitments.
